Description

June 28, 1932. c. A. BATCHELDER HO S I ERY FORM Filed Oct. 9, 1929 @Wlormeqo.

Patented June 28, 1932 PATENT OFFICE CHARLES A. BATCHELDEB, OF ST. ALBANS, MAINE nosmrw FORM Application filed October 9, 1929. Serial 1T0. 398,487.

The object of this invention is to provide a novel magnetic means whereby a hosiery form will be held upright.

, In the accompanying drawing: I Figure 1 shows in vertical section, a device constructed in accordance with the invention;

Figure 2 is a bottom plan wherein parts are broken away;

Figure 3 is a transverse section on the line 3-3 of Figure 2;

Figure 4 is a vertical section showing a modification, parts being broken away.

The hosiery form 1 approximates in shape the outline of the human leg and foot, the form embodying a leg 2, a foot 3, a heel 6, and a toe 4. The tread portion of the form is, in the drawing, depicted as a flat plate 5 whereon the form is supported releasably in an upright position. In the bottom of the form, there is an opening 7 extended from the heel 6 to the rear end of the tread plate 5.

In one form of the invention, a magnet 8, generally a permanent magnet, is secured to the tread plate 5, the poles 9 of the magnet being arranged at right angles to the body portion of the magnet, and extending through openings 10 in the tread plate 5 to hold the magnet in place. If the form be placed on a piece of metal which the magnet 8 will attract, the form will be held releasably in the upright position of Figure 1. The user may supply his own metallic member for cooperation with the poles 9 of the magnet 8, but, for the accommodation of those who do not wish to do this, there may be provided an attractive base 11, the fiat top 12 of which is a metallic plate or keeper for which the magnet 8 will have attraction.

It is not mandatory that the magnetic means for holding the form upright be of the precise construction hereinbefore described. In Figure 4, wherein parts hereinbefore described have been designated by numerals previously used, with the suflix a. In Figure 4, the magnet 14 has offset poles 15, as before, but these poles project through openings 16 in the top 12a of the base 11a, and hold the magnet in place, it being unnecessary in this modification to fashion the member 12a out of metal. In the tread plate 5a of the hosiery form 1a is secured a metal keeper 17 which may have a flange 18 overlapping the upper'surface of the tread plate 5a, the magnet 14 being secured against the under surface of the top 12a of the base 11a. The magnet 14 cooperates with the metal keeper 17 to hold the form 1a releasably in the position shown in Figure 4 of the drawmg.

The advantages of the structure claimed" are as follows:

The poles 9 form means for holding the magnet in place without using securing elements. The poles 9, being spaced apart transversely, give the form 2-3 stability against tipping over sidewise. The exposed ends of the poles 9 constitute wear-resisting elements. The elongated U-shape of the magnet 8 enables it to be placed wellup in the toe of the form and still have the center of mass of themagnet lowdown, so that the magnet acts as an eflicient weight, and still takes up but little room, considered vertical- 1y. The magnet 14 acts as an efficient weight for the base 11a and takes up little room considered vertically, it being possible to make the base 11a of little height.

What is claimed is l. A device for displaying hosiery, comprising as cooperating members, a base having a flat upper part, and a form shaped to simulate the human leg and foot, and having a flat [lower part resting on the flat upper part of the base: and an elongated, U-shaped magnet housed within one of said cooperating members and extending along the inner surface of the flat part of said one cooperating member, lengthwise of the foot portion of the form, the magnet having rectangularly disposed poles extended through said flat part of said one cooperating member, and forming means for holding the magnet in place, the poles being spaced apart, transversely, to give the form stability against tipping. over sidewise, the exposed ends of the poles constituting wear-resisting elements, the elongated U-shape of the magnet enabling the center of mass of the magnet to'be disposed low down, the magnet thus acting as an efiicient weight and taking up little room, considered vertically, thereby making it possible to form said one cooperating member of little height, adjacent to the magnet, the other of said cooperating members comprising a part which the magnet attracts.

2. A device for displaying hosiery, comprising a base having a flat upper part, and a form shaped to simulate the human leg and I foot, and having a flat lower part resting on the flat upper part of the base: and an elongated, U-shaped magnet housed within the form and extended along the inner surface of the flat part of the form, lengthwise of the foot port-ion of the form, the magnet having rectangularly disposed poles extended through said flat part of the form and constituting means for holding the magnet in place in the form, the poles being spaced apart transversely, to give the form stability against tipping over sidewise, the exposed ends of the poles constitutingwear-resisting elements, the elongated U-shape of the magnet enabling the center of mass of the magnet to be disposed low down, the magnet thus acting as an eflicient wei ht for the form and taking up little room, considered vertically, thereby making it possible to fashion the form of little height, above the magnet, the base comprising a part which the magnet attracts.

3. A device for displaying hosiery, eomprising a base having a fiat upper part, and a form shaped to simulate the human leg and h foot, and having a flat lower part resting on the fiat upper part of the base: and an elongated, U-shaped magnet housed within the base and extended along the inner surface of the fiat part of the base, lengthwise of the foot portion of the form, the magnet having rectangularly disposed poles extended through the flat part of the base, and forming means for holding the magnet in place, the poles being spaced apart transversely,

. thereby to give the form stability against tipping over sidewise, the exposed ends of the poles constituting wear-resisting elements, the elongated U-shape of the magnet enabling the center of mass of the magnet to be disposed low down, the magnet thus acting as an efiicient weight for the base, and taking up little room, considered vertically, thereby making it possible to form the base of little height, adjacent to the magnet, the form comprising a part which the magnet attracts.

4. In a device for displaying hosiery, comprising as cooperating members, a base, and a light, hollow form simulatino the human foot and leg in shape and embodying a tread resting on the base, the form carrying a member constituting a super-added weight which functions to hold the device fixedly in an upright, display position: structure which reduces said super-added weight, said structure comprising magnetic elements comprising :1

keeper and a light magnet, one of said magnetic elements being carried by one of said cooperating members, and the other of said magnetic elements being carried by the other of said cooperating members, the center of mass of the magnetic element of the form being located close to the tread, and the center of mass of the form and its magnetic element, taken together, lying to the rear of the magnetic element of the form.

5. In a device for displaying hosiery, a base, and a light, hollow form simulating the human foot and leg in shape and embodying a tread resting on the base, the form carrying a member constituting a super-added weight which functions to hold the device fixedly in an upright, display position structure which reduces said super-added weight, said structure comprising a keeper on the tread, and a magnet on the base, the center of mass of the keeper being located close to the tread, and the center of mass of the form.

and the keeper, takentogether, lying to the rear of the keeper.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto afiixed my signature.

CHARLES A. BATOHELDER.
